Students develop knowledge of hospice and palliative care, when these services are used and how they affect families. The different settings in which hospice palliative care is given are described. Advance directives, living-wills, heroic measures and DNR (do not resuscitate) instructions are discussed. Support with these factors can offer aging persons and families peace of mind and a measure of control when death occurs.
